From a news release:

If you plan to imbibe Friday night, line up a sober driver.

The Laurel Police Department will conduct a sobriety checkpoint on Friday, June 27, from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. in the 100 block of Second Street (Northbound Route 1).

Mayor Craig Moe and Police Chief Richard McLaughlin said in a release that getting impaired drivers off our streets is critical to reduce vehicle injuries and deaths. Conducting periodic sobriety checkpoints raises public awareness and informs residents about the efforts that are being used to identify and apprehend impaired drivers, the city says.

If anyone gets a DUI There they deserve it. I don't know why they release the information were they are going to do it at that is plan stupid . While I don't agree with drinking and driving I don't believe in the way they determine a persons sobriety . Some people are fine to drive after drinking a few beers but others or not . I believe they should have to do some type of driving simulator to judge if one is able to drive or not . I have not had a drink in 12 years but when I did you could pour me into a car and I drove better then just about anyone on the road . I learned how to drive drunk for Christ sakes .
